Starblood Arena is a futuristic flight action shooter inspired by cult-classic Descent. The game, dedicated for PlayStation 4 VR sets, was developed by WhiteMoon Dreams, a small developer based in South California.
Starblood Arena enables the players to assume control over APEX Battle Pods – special, military-grade capsules, able to travel freely around the space without conforming to the laws of physics. Our job is to take part in spectacular clashes taking place in underground arenas. We are left with 9 pilots, different in piloting style, preferred weapon, as well as battle strategy.
Each of the Battle Pods can be modified – we can change colors, introduce new visual additions or mods that influence the performance of our machine. The vehicles are incredibly agile – the key to success lies in mastering the freefall mechanics and handling of each vehicle. During the game, we can freely look around the capsule using head movements – this method is also used to locate our targets.
StarBlood Arena for PlayStation 4 introduces a singleplayer campaign, as well as a set of multiplayer modes, including Carnage, a variation on classic Deathmatch, Team Carnage, Invaders, in which up to four players repel continuous waves of AI-controlled enemies, and Gridiron – a team goal-scoring game.
StarBlood Arena is characterized by decent 3D visuals, embelished with numerous special effects. Immense animation speed is definitely one of the mainstays of the game – the developers took extra time to bring the whole project to a satisfying outcome, considering various negative consequences stemming from longer playthroughs.
